Discovery NotesLocation Descriptors:

- Backyard of a suburban household
- Area sampled from is was previously a plant grow bed and before that there was a sand pit above

Soil Descriptors:

- Approximately 60% sandy soil and 40% coarse soil
- Slightly moist, as it was in the morning and dew was fresh on the ground
- Flakey
Naming NotesDue to difficulties getting the phage to represent itself on the bacterial lawn (personal error), and the practice of using phage to treat bacterial infections in both animals and humans.
I thought it appropriate to name the phage SilentRX. As it could be administered as "the Silent treatment."
